The Shakti Goddess Explained

If you’re working on discovering your spiritual identity and beliefs, you might have stumbled upon the term Shakti, also known as the Shakti Goddess.

Tantric Sex: What is it and how to incorporate it into your sexual world

While Tantra is so much more than sex, many of us in the western world are drawn to its philosophy because of the promise of Earth shaking orgasms and the possibility of connecting to the Divine.

So, what is Sex Therapy anyway

This is a question I get asked A LOT. Especially from friends and people who hear that sex therapy is a thing and not just a thing like you see in the movies, but an actual career.

Honoring Winter

Winter. The cold. The darkness. For some, it marks a dismal time of year and for others, it offers remembrance of light in the form of celebration. But winter is longer than the celebratory holidays and can be a struggle for many. It can be easy to forget that we are a part of this Earth. This planet that spins and cycles. Many of our wild furry friends are tuned into the cycles and live
